After months of anxious waiting, students have received their I/GCSE results – based solely on teachers' predicted grades. So, how have schools in Vietnam performed?

There have been days, weeks and months of panic and uncertainty for students awaiting this year's I/GCSE results. First, all teaching moved online, then all exams were cancelled, and most recently there has been controversy over the grading process. The wait is over – and students at international schools across Vietnam have received their I/GCSE results.

In a U-turn decision, the UK Government has replaced a controversial algorithm used to determine all I/GCSE and A/AS Level grades with an (arguably) fairer method based solely on predicted grades (Centre Assessment Grades). It means that I/GCSE students will receive their results today, knowing that their teachers – who should know them best – have been responsible for the outcomes.


At British International School, HCMC students have achieved some of the school's highest results while showing "even greater adaptability and resilience in response to the unprecedented circumstances". 71% of grades were A*/A,  91% A* - B, and 98% of grades were A* - C.

Nearly a third (27%) of students achieved A*/A in all subjects, while 99% of students achieved five or more grades at A* - C. 97% of students achieved five or more grades at A* - C including English and Maths

These results represent the second highest IGCSE performance of any BIS HCMC cohort, and once again place BIS HCMC students among the very best globally. Such outcomes are a reward for the hard work of students, and the support of teachers and parents.

This year - more so than ever - our Year 11 students have shown ein which we all find ourselves. These results provide our students with a secure foundation for the next stage of their academic journey, either through entry to the IB Diploma Programme here at BIS or other academic pathways.

Principal Anthony Rowlands said:

"Once again BIS HCMC students have set an amazing standard in academic achievement even in the most challenging of years. I am so proud of what this particular cohort have achieved with regards to their IGCSE results and are now fully prepared to move on to the next stage of their education."

Results will be added to this article as we receive them. If you would like your school's results to be added, please email them to us at
